Product description

Product Description

Containing over 3,100 entries on all aspects of both human and physical geography, this best-selling dictionary is the most authoritative single-volume reference work of its kind. It includes coverage of cartography, surveying, meteorology, climatology, ecology, population, industry, and development. Worked examples and diagrams are provided for many entries, including 15 new illustrations.

All existing entries have been fully revised and updated for this new edition, and there is now expanded coverage of Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and glacial geomorphology, as well as the inclusion of more international examples within definitions, broadening its coverage considerably. The dictionary includes more than 400 new entries, including economies of scope, marginalization, rurality, and tax havens and offshore
financial centres. Recommended web links are suggested for many entries, accessible and kept up to date via the Dictionary of Geography companion website.

Packed with clear, concise, and authoritative information, this A-Z reference is an essential companion for all students and teachers of geography.

About the Author

Susan Mayhew has taught geography at every level - from Year 7 to undergraduate - for 45 years, and is dedicated to the demystification of geography.
